With everything going on in the world, it’s hard to decide what to do for spring break. I’m sure many of us (Like me) are staying local for spring break.
If you decide to stay in South Florida or you are coming to visit, I found 10 things to do so you and your kids don’t drive each other crazy.
1. Send them to Spring Break Camp
Local Mom Scoop is working with some South Florida spring break camps. from acting to sewing, there is something for every child on this list. All Local Kid Scoop approved.
2. Make It A Beach Day
We are spoiled as I watch the North East even Texas get pummeled by winter weather and snow.
Our local beaches are the best. Some you need a beach pass for if you’re local and some you have to pay a meter. But it’s worth it.
3. Have Your Kids Help With Chores During Spring Break
So far we’ve had 8 months of school and moms can be a little tired by this point, especially if you are virtual learning. It’s time to start delegating chores for your kids. Make it fun and give yourself a break at the same time. I’m sharing 10 Chores For Kids During Spring Break that will have mom happy and the kids feeling empowered by the end of the break.
4. Picnic in the Park
Make sure to visit Boca’s Spanish River Park or Red Reef Park. Pack a lunch or bring the charcoal to this 67-acre, oceanfront park. It’s equipped with grills, tables, and restrooms. Reservations are not needed as facilities are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Don’t forget to bring a garbage bag for a little beach clean-up.
Red Reef Park is located at 1400 N Ocean Blvd. Call 561-393-7974 for more information.
With Daylights Saving Time, the sun now rises around 7:30 AM. Since we’ve been getting up in the dark for school. What’s one more morning, to see a magnificent sunrise at the beach.
6. Go to a Green Market
Visit The Local Greenmarkets with your family.
The West Palm Beach GreenMarket takes place every Saturday from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and is free to the public. The GreenMarket will take place weekly on Saturdays now through April 18, except for March 28, due to the Palm Beach International Boat Show.

7. Daytrips around Florida
8. Have A Family Fun Night
You should plan a family game night. Whether it’s Mario Kart (which I usually win), or the OG of board games, it’s fun to sit down at the kitchen table and laugh and have a conversation.
9. Plan A Family Movie Night
Host an outdoor movie night and socially distance with close friends. Or just get your favorite blankets and get cozy on the couch with a classic movie.
10. Plan A Staycation
There are some great local hotels that are family-friendly and will have you enjoying the beach, waterslides, good food, and more. We had a staycation at the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island over the summer and had a blast. Another great resort is the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs, Florida.
